KIRKUS REVIEW

How to hide big hips, camouflage bony elbows, and highlight your better features. These suggestions for dressing and accessorizing defensively promise to sabotage nature's unwanted gifts--thick necks, thin ankles--for every shape and size imaginable. Small rib cage? Avoid clingy fabrics. Tall and too thin? Wear long, bulky sweaters and pants with pockets. Shoulders too wide? Try raglan sleeves and forget about puffy ones. The advice unreels unobjectionably, without too much of the usual narcissistic chatter, but it's not classy either--the authors feel compelled to define such vital concepts as ""general"" and ""appearance."" As a foundation, white cotton rather than fine lace.
